Purported iPad mini-like iPad 5 casings leak

Again, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the next-generation iPad 5 may be adopting the design cues of the iPad mini. With that in mind, 9to5Mac has scored some pictures of what just might be the back casing for the black Wi-Fi + 3G model.

Today, we received an unverified image from a purported China-based iPad accessories maker, an industry that seems to frequently tip off Apple’s future product designs, of the back plate for the next iPad.

I've already gone over the background for why this design makes sense, but also what technological hurdles still need to be overcome to make it a reality.

One of the pictures is up top. Check out the rest via the link below.
